Fund Communities, Not Cops #DefundNYPD

On Thurs, 6/25, #RiseUp to demand New York City Council and Mayor Bill de Blasio #defundNYPD and invest in our communities.

Through art, performance and by taking the streets, we will call on de Blasio and the Council to cut AT LEAST $1 billion directly from the NYPD's bloated, almost $6 billion FY21 expense budget and redirect that money to services, programs, and infrastructure for Black, Latinx and other communities of color.

Bring power, creativity, magic, vision, art, signs, and masks.

Groups organizing this action include: Justice Committee, Brooklyn Movement Center, FIERCE, and Jews for Racial and Economic Justice
